Angry problems with iptables not finding shared object


Hello.

Today I was installing a new system and tried to run an iptables script I have on another machine, in which works flawlessly, and get a bunch of errors:

Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.
iptables v1.3.6: Couldn't load target `standard':/lib/iptables/libipt_standard.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Looking into /lib there isn't an iptables directory but there's one named xtables. I tried creating a sybolic link:

ln -s /lib/xtables /lib/iptables

but, still doesn't work don't know if is a bug or what but have other systems running without problems.

I running this on Lenny 5.0.4 and iptables was installed with apt-get install iptables.

Server:/lib# iptables -V
iptables v1.3.6

Please guide me to where I can find info on how to fix this problem.

Thanks in advanced for your help.

I can't believe it!

I've tried unsuccessfully upgrade iptables with apt-get upgrade but, it didn't upgrade to the latest version. I decided to just remove it: apt-get remove iptables and reinstall again: apt-get install iptables. This time it installed the newer version iptables v1.4.2 and now the script is working.

Don't know what was causing that but, problem is solved.
